And I'm so very proud of them. It's very exciting to actually be WEARING them today. How awesome.
Because I'm learning and experimenting, I made the first sock a little big, so I made the second sock the next size down. It fits great everywhere, but I didn't give it enough length to accommodate that it isn't as "round" so it's a tad short, nothing major, but lessons learned. LOVE them and I'll be starting my second pair soon. I need a little bit of a break from teensy tinesy needles for a little while. (maybe a day???)
The experience of making this pair of socks was really quite fun. I learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed making them...I feel a little addicted and wonder how I'm going to manage to make all the socks that I want to make. Everyone watch out...you may be getting socks as gifts in the near future! I find it so satisfying to MAKE things that I can wear. This morning as I got dressed I was all excited to wear MY socks and then I put on MY hat and MY scarf and it was just amazing. Definitely a proud moment.
I hope you enjoy the pic of my snuggly feet! :) I know I'm enjoying how snuggly my feet feel today!
